For the past 2 nights, Joshua has been screaming after his early evening feeding. It seems to be around 7-9 oclock ish and after he is done eating he just screams. He tenses up, face turns red, the whole nine yards. I burped him, changed him, I know hes fed because we would just finish it (about 4 1/2 oz) I took him underarm temperature both nights (didnt want to do the rectal unless the arm came up high) He is just wearing a cotton sleeper, so I know he shouldnt be hot, the house is 69 degrees so he shouldnt be cold either. I hold him in different positions thinking maybe hes not comfortable, and he stops crying for maybe a minute and then starts again. I get up walk around with him, the same thing he stops for maybe a minute to take in his surroundings, but then back to crying. He refuses his binky, refuses more formula....Im at a lost! The only thing that gets him to stop is for me to turn on the white noise on my phone/computer and blast it. Then he goes to sleep and I put him in his swing and wakes up an hour or so later and seems to be ok. The crying thing lasts between 30-60 minutes . Is this collic? Anyone have anything similar go on with them??? Help!

Thank you *Kiliki* for the awesome siggy

I read somewhere colic is for 3 hours a day, 3 times a week, for at least 3 weeks. I think that's his way of winding down. Evan does the same thing but with his first bottle of the morning.

I posted this on another thread but I just read that fussiness peaks at six weeks. I think you probably have to see how long this lasts before you know if its colic.

Every baby has their witching hour. Sophia is alway sfussy at night aslo accompained by gas but seems much happier during the day but then again not every night she fusses. It could be his witching hour but of course if it continues I would ask the dr.

My guy does the same thing at night....I take him in the bath tub....the water running is the perfect white nose, the warmth is soothing for both, the water must also stimulate bowels which for my guy can normally be painful! It calms him right dwn! Give it try!

Recently we found out that our little David has acid reflux. Despite only being 6.5 weeks old, he has a script for zantac. The poor little guy would SCREAM when he burps and he is almost impossible to burp because of it.

One of the things that helps him (when he has colic) is Onion Water. You take a yellow onion, cut it in half and then slice it into 1" wide slices and boil it until the water turns yellow. Add a little bit of sugar for the baby to drink it (if they won't drink it straight) and then make sure it's at a safe temperature for the baby and feed it to them. Give them at least 1 oz. It's like liquid gold! It helps the little guy almost instantly and he is able to sleep and thus so are we.

Hope it helps!!! <3
